Bauer, a former WWE writer, alleged the following:
"For every new writer that would show up, he come in the room, put his hand down his pants, pull out his d*ck, touch himself, then say "I'm Randy Orton, shake my hand. Oh, you dont want to shake my hand? You're big leaguing me? That's f**ked up man. Should I tell Vince and Steph you wont shake Randy Orton's hand?"
The story continued, with Court stating that Orton would then cut promos on visibly uncomfortable writers while still exposed, and that 'The Viper' was so intense, nobody could ever tell if it was a rib or not.
Figure Four Online reached out to WWE for a statement, with the company responding that they're "looking into the matter."
It's hard to tell whether or not there'll be consequences for Orton. Not only is he a company favourite and one of WWE's most decorated stars, but he has survived a number of controversies throughout his 18 years in the company. These allegations, if true, are reprehensible, though the company would need to undergo a full investigation before taking action.
That being said, the story was all over the internet this weekend. If it gathers steam à la the Fabulous Moolah Battle Royal controversy, WWE won't be able to ignore it, and this could spell bad news for Orton.
